Year in review blog: stats requests?


#1

Hi guys!

I’m putting together a blog with a bunch of stats from 2018, including cubes players new millionaires etc. What stats would you like to see?

Annkri suggested mystic stats, total # cells, total active players/scouts/scythes


#2

Suggestions: some breakdowns of size of cells/how long it took to complete them

Also maybe something to do with special events? Like maybe number of cubes/cells completed during events


#3

that would be cool perhaps even you could make a digram showing numbers of cells betwheen 0-100, 100-200 etc

also you could have some stats for how many new players we have gotthis year / how many did finish tutorials

perhaps some info on how much work have been done this year in comparison to earlier years.


#4

how many achievements were unlocked?


#5

The oldest cubes to find their proper homes? Like when an old stashed merger finds its place.

How many times For Science! was entered in the chat?


#6

Amount of updates made for KK’s scripts lol


#7

@KrzysztofKruk we def want to include this!


#8

Sure!
2 new scripts last year
160 contributions last year
In total:
9 scripts
26 files
6701 lines of code (5259 lines of JavaScript + JSON; 397 lines of PHP + SQL; 1045 lines of CSS)


#9

perhaps top players in accuracy


#10

perhaps top players as compared to other players, percentage of works in eyewire


#11
  1. how many hours people spent working on cubes
  2. % of new cells contributed to the entire project (like 20% of all Eyewire cell completions occurred in 2018) and compared to years before (10% growth in cells completed compared to other years)
  3. how much of dig sector completed in % (like 75% done)
  4. new papers that came out
  5. new types of neurons discovered
  6. the # of new cells and cubes completed
  7. new eyewirers - #, locations
  8. the # of new badges handed out
  9. improvements made to the site - helpful to keep people relevant - like how there’s a glow to where people are located in a cell
  10. highest # of points made by a person in 2018

#12

perhaps some mystics-info, like how many cells, different types of cells if already known, percentage of cells done in dataset


#13

Thanks everyone! We have a big list on the whiteboard at HQ and are going to pull together as many as possible.


#14

Oh man we’re putting all these stats together and they’re so fun. Any guesses as to how many cubes were submitted last year?


#15

1.3 million?


#16

Perfect guess


#17

Just throwing it out there, but wouldn’t it be cool to have an individual stat list, like if someone pulls up their name (like in a search bar, so they can pull up other people’s usernames too), it’ll show which cells they worked on, followed by the # of cubes, completes, time, % of cell work on, etc. within the cell for 2018? Or maybe this should be for all years?


#18

That would be really cool.

Stats post is live! https://blog.eyewire.org/eyewire-2018-stats/


#19

I look forward to this all year. I really like the list! i’m just wondering though, how come more zfish cells were completed than retinal cells? Are they smaller, easier, or just better/more dedicated players to work on them?


#20

3 things really:

  • Msty does 95% of the work (until she decides to do 95% of the work on other cells and adds them to yours)
  • You have 2 players working on a cell, player B is generally just a 2nd SC
  • Since cells start by synapses and not with cell bodies like in eyewire cells, you can have duplicate cells that are both a part of the same cell (I had a cell for instance with 6 dupes within 3 cubes) and all of those dupes are given cell IDs and probably counted here for simplicity.
